About MeHello people of the world!
My name is Salayna Christine, Otherwise known as Melo Proxy.
I am an experienced Freelance Model, self managed since December of 2013. I have taken years of my life to work take classes, do promotional jobs, and be over-all managed by my mother and other agencys.
I work at a Tattoo shop Called Red Dragon Tattoo, located in Cincinnati Ohio.
As you may guess, That does mean I have my fair share of Modifications, such as tattoo, piercings, and gauged ears. I also work as a Stage costume designer, and YouTube vlogger.
As a Freelance model who has much other stuff to do, I do require a little more effort and patience in order to work smoothly and comfortably. Here are more details of things that I just would like to be known and respected before any type of shoot planning. :)
WHAT I HOPE TO DISCOVER HERE AT MM.
As of right now, I am not currently looking for any type of paid work. Including anything promotional. Right now my goal is to expand, meet some new photographers, and also meet some new photo editing artist. I would really like to work with those willing to take so called "chances" with their art, to see if we can come up with a beautiful, yet very unique and different end product. I personally like to push out as much emotion as I can during shoot's, and as well as planning them.
I would love to do some collab shoots, combine ideas, or work off of each others. My preferable shoot ideas as of right now are:
Fairy Tail/Cosplay/Science Fiction.
Horror/ Grunge/ Dark/ Goth
Bubble Goth/ Goth Glam/
Nature/ Wild/ Free
Doll/ Puppet/ Petite Girl
Ink/ Modification/ Extreme Art
(Studio Work as well)
I would hope that as a Freelance model, that me as well as the ideas I have, or what I am willing (or not willing) to shoot can be respect, as what you are willing to shoot can be respect by me. I will give all photographers and Editors credit for their work, but If I have also put in my work, or am posting it to my pages, I would like to be able to put my own WaterMark on it, just to complete verify that I, and Photographer, both own and have taken credit for that work. *Keep in mind we are also talking about the free shoots. Paid work obviously wouldn't have such tight restrictions*
I have personally had my pictures taken, and used without my permission, and this is just a way to make sure people know who take credit for the work, Understandable right? :)
OUTFITTING, PROPS, & MAKEUP
I myself am a makeup artist as well as the many other things I do, But for those jobs that I can't accomplish on my own, I have the resources I can go to, to get it done.
Depending on how creative the shoot idea gets, I have/ and can cover most outfits and props. I'm a perfectionist, and for some reason I like to really make sure everything turns out the best It can on my end.
SCOUTING & LOCATION
If we are planning to do a shoot, and it is one that is leaned more towards you and what you would like to shoot, I would like that you know of some location, or are capable of scouting for a location within your area, or any area you'd like to shoot at. If we are planning something where each of us have put in equal effort, I am willing to do all scouting for location, as well as providing what I can for outfits and props. Same goes for if the shoot is leaning on more of my ideas, then I will obviously take care of most of the harder work.
MODEL/ PHOTOGRAPHER RELEASE & RECEIVING FINISHED PRODUCTS
Before doing the shoot,Depending on the details of what the pictures are being shot for, or whom their are being shot for, I would like a release form to be signed, just establishing the details of the shoot, and what will be shot or what was shot. It's common practice, to make sure that neither of us step on each other in any way.
If you are working on other projects that are paying clients, therefore will take you longer to edit the pictures and return the finished products back to me, please just let me know before hand. One thing I personally can't help is the frustration I face when it's been more than a few months since receiving back the shoot pictures. So if you think it will take more time, please let me know so I don't worry myself to death about if I will ever get them back or not.
*** I take Free shoots just as seriously as paid work. And as a professional model I will not take part in any unprofessional work. This is may be a hobby for some of you, But I want to be in higher places one day, and want to work with people who quire the same respect. As a professionals trying to get better and get further with what we do, I think that's understandable and reasonable***
Aside from that, pretty much everything else we can just talk about one on one :) I know this may all seem crazy but once we got all that over with I know we will have a good ol time shooting!
Please contact me though my Official page if you are up for shooting! I check that more than I do my email!
Also if you want to get to know me a little bit more, personally, here is my Official Tumblr and my YouTube channel link, and I block and update those often.
